Ricky's 8* play on LA Lakers.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Lakers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven playoff games as a favorite.
- The Rockets are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games playing on 1 days rest.
- The Rockets are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games following a straight up loss.
Verdict: The Lakers are in the driver's seat.
